    I think your ring is really pretty! Radiant cut moissy shows a lot of body color – I’m not sure if it would “match” with your melee.

    Your ring is perfect the way it is. If you are looking for a bigger look, perhaps a new rhr? I wouldn’t mess with perfection. I love it!

    Personaly I have found it hard to change stones/sizes that much and have it look good in the setting. My thoughts are 

    1) get another diamond band for the other side 


    2) get a whole new 1ct Moissy is the cut you want in a plain setting that you can wear sometimes or as a RHR 

    Over all I dont think you should mess with the current ring.

    I always vote to upgrade a center stone, but consider that in that particular setting unless the stone was set really high the wedding band won’t have any chance to sit flush to the ering. If a gap doesn’t bother you then I say go for it!

    NEAM2014:  + 1

    Justbrynne: If it isn’t too personal, why does your FI want to upgrade? I think that since you are the one who will be wearing it every day you should LOVE it. It sounds like you really love yours so I don’t think you should change it. I think your ring is lovely, delicate and feminine. The set is really pretty together. We upgraded my e-ring so I understand that- but we did it because I wanted something else and FI wanted me to love my ring. Maybe if you told your FI how much you love yours he would change his mind?

    If you decide to upgrade I second NEAM2014 that you should get an entirely new ring. Radiant cuts and square brilliant show more warmth than rounds so that is also something else to consider if you are color sensitive or if you wanted to keep it in your current setting. Here is a thread where a few bees posted their square moissy so you can get an idea of how it looks:


    Best wishes, whatever you choose to do!

    I love your ring now but a radient cut would look amazing!!!! Do what you feel is right! You could always keep your other stone. I just got my “upgrade” and I put my other ring away, I plan to give it to my daughter someday.
